17 million workdays were lost due to stress related illnesses 2021/22
Stress is a modern-day problem that many suffer from, with symptoms such as:
Feeling constantly tired
Unable to focus and concentrate
Stress not only affects our mental wellbeing, but it also impacts our physical wellbeing too, with symptoms such as:
Compromised immune system resulting in recurring coughs, colds and other infections
More susceptible to pain
Increased blood pressure
Headaches and migraines
If left unchecked then this can lead to extreme stress, anxiety and depression which can result in long term absence. Anyone from management to someone that’s just starting out can be affected by stress. Often the first indicator is when someone reaches breaking point by which time a break from work will be needed.
Life can be very stressful, but we can also learn how to manage it appropriately, so that we react calmer, are able to concentrate, know how to relax, sleep better and lose those negative thoughts.
Reducing stress in the workplace and all aspects of life is very important to the smooth running of a business. This can be achieved by not only looking at working practices but just as importantly equipping your employees with the skills needed to manage their stress.
My four-session stress management programme will equip your employees with the skills and resources needed to manage stress now and in the future.
Explains what stress is and the effect it has on our physical and mental well- being
Teaches about the resources within us needed to help manage stress and how to use them to the best affect
Helps to identify triggers and how to overcome them
Teaches effective time management, resulting in being more relaxed and productive
Helps to identify self -worth and increase confidence
During each session, practical skills are taught, enabling stress levels to be managed, now and in the future, so each day can be started feeling calm, relaxed, clear headed and focused.
We all have the resources within us to help take control of and manage stress. These sessions are specifically designed to help manage mindset and stress levels in a practical and relaxing way. So that thoughts and feelings can easily be handled whenever and wherever.
Hypnosis is used to reinforce these skills through the powerful mind and imagination, resulting in feeling calmer and more relaxed.
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring altered state of awareness and consciousness. This altered state, the trance state, is pleasant and extremely relaxing. We naturally enter a hypnotic state many times a day; when we are totally engrossed in a book or fully absorbed in a TV program, oblivious to anything around us. Whilst in the trance state we are always in full control and will not be made to do anything against our will.
Hypnotherapy helps to make positive changes enabling life to be happier and more fulfilling. This works by helping to change the way we think, feel and behave. All that’s needed is to be willing to make positive changes.
All of this will lead to happier, calmer, healthier, motivated, and more productive staff whilst helping to create a mentally healthy environment.
How will this help your business?
Mentally healthy environments reduce absenteeism but also boost productivity and performance in the workplace. A happier workforce is more able to cope with change and any challenges, staff turnover will be reduced helping to keep skilled workers within the business.
By developing a good working environment that promotes well-being, the reputation of the organisation is improved as well as the physical health of employees. The link between mental and physical health is so important. Poor mental health influences our physical health, we do feel everything we think. Equally poor physical health impacts our mental health, when physically unwell it impacts on the things, we can do which then affects our mental health.
Finally, since 2017 businesses have a legal obligation to provide for their employees physical and mental wellbeing, by creating a mentally healthy workplace, organisations will meet their legal responsibilities to provide for their employees physical and mental well-being, prevention and early intervention in mental ill health helps comply with this legislation.
This Programme is for a group of up to ten people at a time and can be carried out face-to-face or online.
